Romantic Music

Romantic music is a musicological and artistic term referring to aparticular period, theory, compositional practice, and cannon in Western music history, from about 1830 to 1910. 

Romantic music as a movement evolved from the formats, genres and musical ideas established in earlier periods, such as the classical period, and went further in the name of expression and syncretism of different art-forms with music.

Romantic music attempted to increase emotional expression and power to describe deeper truths or human feelings, while preserving but in many cases extending the formal structures from the classical period, in others, creating new forms that were deemed better suited to the new subject matter.
Early Romantic ( 1800-1850 ) : Early Romantic composers of a slightly later generation included Franz Lizt, Felix Mendhelson , Federic Chopin, and Hector Barlioz.

Late Romantic era ( 1850- 1900 ) : some composers created styles and forms associated with their national folk cultures. The notion that there were "German" and "Italian" styles had long been established in writing on music, but the late 19th century saw the rise of a nationalist Russian style , and also Czech, Finnish and French nationalist styles of composition.
